What People Say About Dr. Anthony DeRosa, MD

He is an excellent physician his specialty in eye surgeries is above and beyond anyone else. He did cataract surgery for me, removing the cataracts and putting in intra ocular lenses in each eye so I can see as well as I did when I was a child! The lenses are for near and far vision. Right eye is for close or near vision, and the left for far or distant vision. He is the best. Great personality, and he cares for allhis patients.

Dr. DeRosa has performed corrective surgery on both of my eyes with excellent results in each case. He is patient and answers all questions completely. He explains everything to you in an easygoing manner - makes you feel like a friend or a peer instead of a patient. That is a plus but the bottom line is that he is an excellent surgeon.

He was very probable and explained everything in detail when it came to my medical questions. I love the fact that he made me feel like a client as opposed to a number. I highly recommend Dr. Derosa.
